[TZUYUIST] Why is she auto-tuned in OMT?

Recommended Posts

I'm sure you all have heard Twice's first original Japanese song: One More Time.

There is a part in that song that's auto-tuned. To be precised, it's the highlight part (before the last chorus) and Jihyo-Tzuyu-Nayeon are the one who get the auto-tune:

Quote

[ALL] One more time, one more time
[JIHYO] Forever more
[ALL] One more time, one more time
[TZUYU] Tsurete itte, nee
[ALL] One more time, one more time
[NAYEON] Kimi to subarashii koi shiyou

I wondered,"Why is it like that?" But then I realize something's different: Tzuyu never gets the highlight part in Twice song before. Usually, it's for Jihyo, Nayeon, or maybe Jeongyeon, Sana, or Mina. Never Tzuyu. So, I think, maybe because in this Japan comeback they want Tzuyu to get the spotlight. Because Tzuyu's part is auto-tuned, they decide to auto-tune Jihyo and Nayeon as well. So it doesn't sound so weird. That' was what I thought. Well, Tzuyu is Twice's visual afterall. She deserves to be the center, right? :ty-notbad: 

And guess what I've found! This is the formation at Tzuyu's part:

:cy-omg: The other members hide behind her hurriedly! Makes it looks like she's the only one on the stage :3 Watch the video here.

Spoiler

This is another formation when Tzuyu sings:

The others give her a space alone while they are pretending to be amazed at her. To take note, not every members get this kind of spotlight in One More Time. In the b-side track, Luv Me, Tzuyu also gets an important part before the pre-chorus. 

 

Anyway, what do you think, guys? Is Tzuyu really the center in this song?

Agree! I'm a fan of Vocaloid and their songs are usually auto-tuned.

      Twice members transform into princesses

      Twice appeared on the cover of Marie Claire fashion magazine’s August issue looking like Disney princesses.

      The K-pop group recently released the song “Dance the Night Away.”

      In the pictures released, each of the nine singers of Twice put on white laced dresses and pastel chiffon outfits.

      Jihyo, Momo and Sana donned dresses with flower patterns. Dahyun and Chaeyoung flashed big smiles for the camera.

      In an interview that accompanied the photo spread, Sana said she had participated in writing the lyrics for the song with Momo and Mina.

      Jihyo shared how she had gotten a tan while shooting the music video for the track. Tzuyu and Nayeon said dance moves for the new song are especially fun because they include plenty of leg movements.
